SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police in South Burlington are seeking to identify three men involved in a protest at Vermont Gas where authorities say an employee was injured.

A group that opposes a natural gas pipeline to extend service to Addison and Rutland counties protested outside of the company’s headquarters on May 27.

Police say two men went to the rooftop of the building to display a banner. Police say another man injured a worker while trying to chain another protester to the door. The female employee was struck in the arm by the large chain.

Police say trespassing as well as simple assault and disorderly conduct complaints could be filed.
